Under "Anthony Brown", but with "Bowen" as an alternative surname; text uses both surnames to refer to the same person. SInce we already have an Anthony Bowen, its probably the right name. HOwever, the Anthony Bowen of this article died by 1787 (probate date) and this is well after that. So this may arefer to his son Anthony, Jr.
